OLYMPIA, Wash. – The Oly Town Artesians are excited to announce that the club has partnered with The Eli Sports Network to provide video webcasts of the Artesians’ 2018 Evergreen Premier League home games. The home slate, complete with live video, kicks off against the defending EPLWA champion Seattle Stars on Sunday, May 13th and continues until the home finale against the Vancouver Victory on Saturday, June 30th.
“The Eli Sports Network is excited to work with such a great organization as the Oly Town Artesians,” said ESN owner Paul Beattie. “The five game schedule we will air on our YouTube, Twitter and Facebook Video channels and will reach more than 25,000 followers on our three social media platforms. We hope this leads to more coverage as we develop this partnership between the Artesians and ESN.”
ESN was founded in 2011 and has been the leading provider of local sports play-by-play coverage ever since, mainly focusing on high school sports in Lewis and Thurston Counties, and covering WIAA state tournaments and other events in Western Washington. They recently added live video streams to their channels and have provided video for numerous high school sporting events and Centralia College athletics.
“We are excited to welcome The Eli Sports Network to the club,” said Artesians General Manager and Founder Brandon Sparks. “This is a great opportunity for more people to see our games and increase our reach and it will be especially great for players that have family out of town, like a lot of our college guys do. It also provides high quality video for our team and coaches to review, so we are thankful for Paul and ESN and excited to have them on board.”
